Slow Cooker Curry Chicken Wings

I think the question is still out there as to whether or not Spring has arrived. We had two days of 70 degree weather this week and it felt more like summer.

Today it is barely going to make 50s. At least we are not getting ice and snow like some parts of the country. Regardless of the weather, I am still using my crock pot and plan to straight through the summer months.

Mr. J makes some mean buffalo chicken wings. They are super hot and spicy. And we don't fry them, simply baked in the oven.

Because Mr. J is such an expert in the wing department I haven't made them. Ever. Not even in a crock pot. This week changed all that when I found a recipe for curried chicken wings.

I simplified the recipe quite a bit using ingredients we already had in the pantry.

The results were an easy Indian style chicken wings dinner. I thought the chicken was just a tad bid dry but the sauce certainly made up for it. Cannot wait to try it again with chicken thighs. If we do wings again I would probably reduce the cooking time to about 3 hours.

  1. Mmmm... count me in for a double portion of this one. Looks great and I love slow cooker meals. :) We hit 90+ degrees yesterday... it's hot here. I don't mind getting some 60-70 degree days since it's still technically spring. :)
